I am the Director of Abdominal Imaging and Professor of Radiology [Clinical]. I am also the Director for Body MRI and Body Imaging and Intervention fellowships. I supervise directly 6 faculty radiologists, 3 clinical fellows and several radiology residents. Abdominal Imaging is a major part of the residency training with 9 residents on the service each month. I also indirectly supervise the technologists, nurses and schedulers at UHS, MARC and RBG. My areas of special interest include Radiation Reduction in Imaging, Transplant Imaging, new MR Sequences and non vascular interventions. My section has one of the highest work RVUs in the department and carries a significant workload of the department. We provide call coverage for the ER in Radiology, Nonvascular interventions and Pediatric procedures all around the year. Our section is academically very successful and presented scientific papers, poster and educational exhibits at all National meeting. Every year our work is recognized with awards at these meetings.
